Daminozide is a PGR that affects the maturity, coloration, firmness, and harvest of a plant or fruit.
First approved for use in 1963, Deminozide was most commonly used on apples. Following research conducted on hamsters and mice, in 1985 the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) proposed banning the use of Daminozide on consumable plants due to the risk of cancer to consumers.Limit for California Compliance in parts per million (ppm):
